DEAD RISING (Working Title)

"Day one, the day I came here was the worst day of my life. I'll admit it, it was a big mistake. I'm a wartime photo journalist, I've seen it all, horror, famine, death - the real stuff of nightmares. At least, that's what I thought. That was until I saw a corpse, get up, walk, and kill. You probably think I'm nuts. The dead getting up and walking? Zombies? I'm not nuts though. Right now, if things go well, I may get my hands on a pulitzer or something. Its not like you hear about too many zombie stories in the news these days.

So I guess there are only two things left to do. Film everything I can, and survive until help arrives."

The song that plays after Frank stops talking is Cletus Samson's theme.
